Weekend Sky #04 – Oct 31st

And it’s a wrap!

The first day of this October saw me on a hospital bed because of my kidney stones removal procedures, when I was wondering about what will happen in the coming days.

Thankfully, by the grace of ALMIGHTY ALLAH and my family’s round-the-clock care and love, I was back on my feet in no time. But not without taking more care of myself and drinking heavy amount of water on daily basis.

And of course, how can I be truly thankful to all the amazing get well soon wishes I received from you and other fellow bloggers.

This filled my heart with nothing but respect for all of you. This also encouraged me to do something special, so I started this Weekend Sky challenge on my blog, a very small gesture from my side for all the wonderful people I’ve met on this blogsphere.

And it’s the weekend again!


For today’s episode, I decided to dive a little into my photo archive:


The evening sky over Karachi on 2020’s Valentine Day looked quite mesmerizing and I’m feeling glad that I took this photo.

And since today also marks the last day (it’s 31st October for me) of Becky’s KindaSquare challenge, so I’m linking this sunset capture for the 30th day of her challenge.

Once again, I’m truly honored by the sky photos shared by these wonderful fellow bloggers for the episode #03 of Weekend Sky. Do check them out:

    Having been offline for a while, I had no idea about your health issues, my friend. So happy to hear that you are well on the road to recovery & I hope you continue to improve rapidly 🙏 Fantastic shot as well; one of my favourite types of shot 😃

      Well, back on the very first day of this October, I underwent through two different kidney stones removal procedures. The recovery phase is still in progress but not as much as it was after returning back home after the procedure.
      Thank you so much for liking my shot 🙂

      I think we must never miss carrying camera at any given point.Cellphones come to the rescue,but nothing like having DSRL or Mirrorless ones.

      All photos I share on my blog are taken by my smartphone. I used a point and click camera also earlier but it malfunctioned, so I switched to smartphone.
      But I do agree with you that photos taken by DSLR and mirrorless cameras are certainly out class.

      Thank you thought I would try something different. We were trapped under that awning for ¹/2 hour.

      Thank you so much for liking my sky photo, Brian. Yes lots and lots of water is certainly the only recommendation by my urologist as well, beside one tiny pill, which I had to once a day take for the next 2 years probably 🙂
